The successes of Team Yorkshire in the 2012 Olympics already has us looking forward to the Paralympics. Win or lose, these remarkable sportsmen and women, some Yorkshire born, others just lucky enough to live and train in England's largest county, are sure to give us even more reason to feel proud. Proud to be Yorkshire.
